Recollective is the best option when it comes to simplicity and all the segmentation functionalities. The other platforms lack this many segmentation options as you offer.

We have used the Recollective platform to power The Cambridge Panel - our online research community of teachers from around the world - for over two years, and in that relatively short period they have become an invaluable partner.

Rob Hardy

Our programer understood our objectives and activity guide well, and used her expertise to ensure that our programming would be engaging to participants whilst best answering our research questions. We would love to work with the Recollective team again.
